Orbignya oleifera (Babassu) Nut Oil
Babassu nut oil penetrates the skin very quickly and as such is used extensively in lotions and creams, soaps, lipstick and other anhydrous preparations.
Babassu nut oil is cold pressed from the kernel of the fruit of the Orbignya oleifera palm.
The Orbignya oleifera babassu palm grows wild in Brazil and is harvested by local co-operatives. The tree is locally known as the "tree of life". In addition to oil extraction, the tree is a source of fuel, food, animal feel and building materials.
High in Lauric acid. Penetrates the skin readily.
